Brise Soleil Horizontally Mounted Canopy
The most popular of all Brise Soleil configurations, horizontally mounted canopies are generally mounted immediately above the glazed area that they are shading. Most horizontal canopies have a projection of between 500 mm and 1,500 mm, which is generally more than adequate to shade the windows or doors below. Options include joining a number of canopies together to form a continuous run, corner units, and overhead support arms.
The brackets that fix the canopies to the wall can either be fixed to the structure before render is applied (generally the case on a new build) or in the case of retro fitting to existing buildings, can be fixed to the external finish. In both cases the brackets are powder coated to match the rest of the system.
Plant Room Doors
Louvre doors are designed to either be stand alone units, or to integrate into a continuous louvre wall solution.
Consisting of an outer frame, and a hinged inner frame which forms the door itself. The inner frame has the louvre blades mounted on it and houses the door handle mechanism, locks etc.
If the door is integrated into a continuous louvre wall, then design is such that it forms an almost seamless part of the wall. Louvre doors can open inwards or outwards depending on specific requirements.
